DANCING RAINBOWS's handmade inspiration
Having been a crafter for many years, I feel we do it "for the Love". When you create an item, you
put your Heart and Soul into that item. I find it hard to create something that I wouldn't want myself.
That's why I know if I buy something Handmade, it is usually very Special.
There are many reasons I love to buy handmade.
Being a crafter
myself I love to support other crafters and artisans.
Plus it helps me to appreciate not only the quality, but
the time, effort,learning and love that goes into handmade products.
Hand made items are unique, I love having
things and giving gifts that are truly special and different.
inspiration came from my daughter. She loves to try new and amazing things, as was the case with all style cloth
diapers (not like my day pins & plastic pants), but all-n-one, prefolds, inserts, etc.. you know the drill, Which
led her to Wool and a photograph. Which led her back to Mom, and asked me to make her a pair of wool longies from
the photo.I said these are knitted. I crochet so stiches will be vertical, not horizontal- Tha's OK.. So I gave
it a try from the picture, and I had the pleasure to make my first pair of woolie bums for my baby grandaughter.
That was over 4 years ago, and I have taken my crochet skills to above and beyond the level of squares/rectangles
to applique funny, crabby, even fishy faces on the bums of longies, soakers, skirties, shorties & more. This
endeavor has also put me in touch with some of the softest, silkiest wool I have ever pleasure to create from in
my life, and all great for the environment, babies bums and easy for Mom's, grams, even Dads. Let's not forget
Handmade** Homemade** Home is where we need to be Taking Care of Our Families-Loved Ones-And Our Planet..
